PREMIERSHIP RUGBY can confirm two of the biggest club rivalries in world rugby have been chosen as live TV matches by BT Sport in the next round of the Anglo-Welsh Cup.

The draw has pitted Bath Rugby v Gloucester Rugby in round three and if that wasn’t enough to set the pulses racing it is followed on the same weekend by Leicester Tigers against Northampton Saints.
